My aim was to add a touch of evening color to the water, and then play with some textures. Used Hue/Sat to bring out the magenta, and upped the cyan and yellow also. Added a Craqelure layer, and used a layer mask to eliminate the texture from areas on the two riders. Added some layers and played with the Blending plus added a Render Lighting to give some stronger hint of the sun.

CJ - I really like the colors and the frame design that you used. The amount of effect seems to be just right for this particular image. The reflection is perfect. Very nice!

CJ, I really like your interpretation. The color changes really make it pop!

For mine, I was just experimenting with a little of everything. I used buZZ, PaintEngine, and Impressionist. I think the final looks most like Impressionist, but they all touched it. Sorry I don't remember the steps.

Thanks, Jeff! Thanks, LQQKER! Means a lot coming from you.

Jeff, I know how hard it is to keep track of all the steps (I left out some steps, also), but Impressionist sounds right -- a nice look.

CJ:

I, too, especially like the framing which accentuates (and doesn't detract from) the overall very painterly effect.

Jeff: The soft approach reminds me of foggy days at the Oregon Coast.

Mine started with an experiment with a new action, whose results I didn't really like by themself (the layer above the BG), merged into layer C. So I started applying Virtual Painter effects copies of layer C and things began to improve quickly.

As you'll see by the Layers Palette snapshot, I used the output of three VP filters (Gouache, Impasto and Oils), hopefully to disguise the unique, visual signature of each.

To add a little detail around the riders and horses, Find Edges was applied to a copy of the original layer (moved above the VP layers) and blended in with a Layer Mask. The Hue/Saturation layer with Lightness setting of -36 toned down the dark lines of the Find Edges layer.
